Could the next God of War please lay off the platforming?

"Let’s make it clear before I begin: I’m a fan of the God Of War series. I’ve just completed God Of War: Ascension--loved it, in fact--but I made it clear in my review that the platforming sections don’t always hit the mark in this latest iteration."

I've always been a fan of the platforming in these games, but it can easily become too much. Since this game seems longer than most of the others, it's unfortunate that there's not as much to the tried and true formula that is God of War. #StillGoingToLoveThisGame

Well there might not be another next god of war, santa monica is working on new IP for next gen.

To be fair i think this one was just for a little back story and money lol. The series to me ended with 3.

Couldn't agree more!

"Could the next God of War please lay off the platforming?"

That's like saying "Could the next Uncharted please lay off the gun-shooting?"

And this ladies and gentlement is everything that is wrong with game journalism today. The author reviewed the game...for themselves. Therein lies the rub.

If you are going to promote your writing and PSU as a site for the gaming public then for the sake of common sense and an end to pure crap writing:

STOP REVIEWING THE DAMN GAME FOR YOURSELF. OTHERWISE PASSWORD THE ENTIRE DAMN SITE AND DON'T LET ANYONE ON IT. YOU CAN WRITE FOR YOURSELF, ABOUT YOURSELF UNTIL YOU HAVE A NARCISITIC HEART ATTACK.

Reviews these days have become an collection of adolescent temper tantrums or else teenage love affairs. They review a game and score it solely based on their likes and dislikes. That, for the young and uniformed, is not how a game is reviewed nor was it always the standard. Once upon a time magazines wrote reviews FOR THE AUDIENCE THAT READ THEIR MAGAZINE. THEY CONSIDERED WHAT THE AUDIENCE LIKED AND EXPECTED.

Face it Steven Williamson, you are not an interesting person. Your life isn't interesting and frankly your opinions on God of War are not interesting. I don't want to sound like I am throwing rocks. Doubtless most people would consider me in a similar fashion. I am fine with that. But since you are not interesting, try being objective for once and take yourself out of your articles.

YOU DO NOT MATTER, THE GAME DOES.

If you want people to read your reviews then for the love of a C++ try writing your reviews for the target demographic likely to buy the game. While you are at it try to use a modicum of intelligent deduction and consider what hardcore GoW fans might think about the title. I know that seems like work but insight and objectivity > useless drivel derived from your own wants and desires. If you can't do this then pick a different site and call it The World of Steve and post to your hearts content.

they are milking this franchise. make some new game for a change like naughty dog is doing.

ziggurcat1208d ago

the last god of war was nearly 3 years ago.

that's hardly milking.

troll fail is fail.

doctorstrange1208d ago

Sony Santa Monica are working on a new IP

PowerPlayaaa1208d ago

Milking ?????
they made 2 GOW games for the PS3, and the PS3 has been out for about 7 years. That for me aint milking,
COD, Assassins Creed, now thats milking.

Kinger89381208d ago

There has been 1 god of war on the ps3

How is that milked?

Adva1208d ago (Edited 1208d ago )

2 God Of War on PS2: GOW 1&2
2 God Of War on PSP: Chains & Ghost
2 God Of War on PS3: GOW 3 & A

Two on each platform where as there are dozens of Halo and Marios on 360 and Wii, respectively.

However, a continuation of GOW with a new character on PS4 would be a good idea.

Psu has 5. Count them 5 negative articles and 1 review on gow pending right. How much is overkill when each article is short. This is hit trolling and this sight needs to clean up its act. Negative articles are boring and played out.

Revolver_X_1208d ago

Seeing as how Gow is in the platforming genre, laying off platforming would make it a brawler. HnS and platforming usually go hand in hand. Fail article.

zlpw0ker1207d ago

WHAT?
gow isnt in the platforming genre,portal is in the platforming genre,just because it has platforming doesnt its in that genre,I totally agree they should lay of platforming in gow,I friggin hate it,I wanna fight nonstop in hack n slash games,not doing stupid QTE or platforming or puzzlesolving,all H&s games got some platforming,but not as much as in gow and I hate that,thats one of the reason why I dont like gow that much.

I never had any problem with the platforming in GoW, it helps break up the combat and helps to stop it from getting tedious.

SatanSki1208d ago

I absolutely hate platforming in any game for like 20 years. It was fun when games didnt have much more to offer but now it only irritates me. GOW should be about fighting and epic fights.
